# Density of the material of the body denser than water

To determine the density of the material of the body denser than water.

DENSITY OF THE MATERIAL OF THE BODY DENSER THAN WATER

### Aim of the experiment:

To determine the density of the material of the body denser than water.

### Apparatus required:

A metal bob, measuring cylinder and weighing balance.

### Formula used:

Density of the material of the body denser than water, ρ = M / V kg/. Where, M = Mass of the body in water (kg) and V = volume of the body ()

### Procedure:

·           Take a metal bob. Weigh the bob in weigh balance. Let the mass of the bob be M.

·           Take a measuring cylinder and fill about half of it with water. Note the reading of water level in the measuring cylinder. Let it be V1.

·           Suspend the bob in the measuring cylinder so that it is completely immersed in water. Note down the level of water in the measuring cylinder. Let it be V2.

·           The difference in the two readings of the measuring cylinder i.e., V1 V2 is the volume of the metal bob.

·           Find out the ratio of mass of the bob in air to the volume of the metal bob. This gives you the density of material of the bob. The ratio of mass of a body to its volume is equal to the density of the material of which the metal bob is made.

### Calculation:

Mass of the metal bob in air, M = _______________ × 103 kg

Volume of the metal bob,       V = _______________ × 103

Density of the material of the metal bob, ρ = M / V = _______________ kg/.

### Result:

The density of the material of the body denser than water is found to be _______________ kg/.
